About the North East Births, Marriages & Deaths
Welcome to neBMD! Birth, Death and Marriage Registration in the North East.
This site is owned by the twelve local authorities of the North East of England. Although all Register Offices operate independently, this is a regional initiative to help customers who use our services.
Its primary purpose is to provide the customer with links to the Register Office websites in the region.
These websites all provide useful information about the services we provide, including postal addresses, e-mail, phone contact numbers and opening hours.
Most usefully, some sites also provide access to the indexes of the records that are held locally. Access to these indexes will enable family historians and other customers to obtain certificates of births, deaths and marriage.
To date, the following have placed indexes on their websites: Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland, Stockton on Tees, Hartlepool, (for these four see Tees Valley), Newcastle upon Tyne, County Durham and Darlington. Visiting these sites will give you access to the index references to millions of birth, marriage and death records in the North East.
The remainder - Northumberland, North Tyneside, South Tyneside, Sunderland and Gateshead have their own plans in hand. A visit to their sites will nevertheless still help you with your enquiries.
You will find a number of useful links on this site - to other regional sites with online indexes for example.
